Introducing SnapLogic Community

We are happy to announce that our new SnapLogic Community is live!

community-overview

Created by popular demand - it’s been running in alpha and beta for a few months – the community is a place where we encourage customers to ask questions about SnapLogic and share their expertise and best practices. Whether you’re looking for help or have tips or tricks, the goal is to provide a community that helps each other.

community-categories

  • Want assistance configuring a particular Snap? Post a question in the Snap Packs category.
  • Interested in sharing a pipeline you have found to be particularly useful? Write about it in the Designing Pipeline category.
  • Want to build your own Snap Pack? Go to the Developing Snaps category.

And yes, we are involved. SnapLogic developers, product managers, field teams, and others review the posts as they come in and when they are updated, but we will rely on the community to support each other.

How to get started

The SnapLogic community is currently for SnapLogic customers only. If you’re a customer with a verified customer email domain, it won’t take us long to approve you and grant you access. 

Go to https://community.snaplogic.com/ to request access. 

When approved, look out for an email with further instructions.

Once you’re approved and logged in, take a look at the content already provided by customers and SnapLogic employees who took part in the alpha and beta releases. Find something particularly useful? Go ahead and “Like” the post. Want to contribute to a thread or have a question? Please do! This community is for you. You will help drive the direction the community takes as it evolves. As your Community Manager, I will occasionally ask for suggestions for the site, but feel free to post ideas that you might have as they come up to the Community Info category.

We’re looking forward to growing this community. Sign up today and let us know what you think.

Sharing Best Practices on the SnapLogic Cloud Integration Community

A few weeks ago, Rishabh Mehan wrote about the new SnapLogic Community – for Developers By Developers. The initial goal of the community was focused on API development and custom Snap building for customers and partners. The site has expanded and we’re starting to see some great participation. Here’s a brief summary: You can now access all of our documentation, Elastic Integration Platform and Snap Development: SnapLogic_Documentation You can now download an on-premises Snaplex (known as a “Groundplex”), the Java SDK, public Snap Packs and installers for Mac, Linux and Windows. SnapLogic_Installers The Community forum for asking questions and sharing best practices has expanded dramatically. You can now select a category and post your question or answer to the forum. SnapLogic_Community_Categories The SnapLogic team has started using the tag: didyouknow when posting tips and tricks. Here are some examples:

  • Which is the most used Snap?
  • How do you remove white spaces from a string?
  • If I can’t use pipeline parameters directly in my SQL select statement, how do I do it?
  • Can you comment on the suitability for using Snaplogic for moving (not transforming) large binary (100s MB or GB) files using FTP?
  • If I can’t use pipeline parameters directly in my SQL select statement, how do I do it?

In your questions (and answers) you can now add screenshots, documents and formatting to ensure it’s clear and detailed. SnapLogic_answers To help us (and others) know what’s most important, you can vote up and down questions and answers: SnapLogic_Community_VotingThe team is adding features to the SnapLogic Developer Community every day and we’re excited to see our customers and partners joining the discussion.  As we continue to see more and more Citizen Integrators logging into our cloud integration service, we’re looking forward to with you.
